Gold Rush Fees for Accelerated Settlement Cycles in Freddie Mac's Selling System
Freddie Mac charges a Gold Rush® fee for the use of 1-, 3- or 4-day settlement cycles. Gold Rush fee rates are based on the duration of the settlement cycle you select for your Fixed-rate Guarantor, WAC ARM Guarantor or MultiLender Swap transactions. The 1-day settlement cycle is available only for MultiLender Swap contracts.
The Gold Rush fee rates in the selling system correlate with the number of days in the settlement cycle, so you can continue to take advantage of the enhanced income stream you receive from getting your securities earlier, while having more flexibility in your settlement cycle. The longer the settlement cycle, the lower the Gold Rush fee rate.
Below you'll find a listing of the current Gold Rush fee rates for accelerated settlement cycles available through the selling system. These fee rates are subject to change on the first business day of each month, based on market conditions. We'll post new Gold Rush fee rates on this page by the 8th business day of the month preceding the month that the new fee rates go into effect. For example, Gold Rush fee rates for December settlement dates will be posted by the 8th business day of November.
Please visit this site each month to check for fee rate changes.
